The glamour of the Monaco Grand Prix with Alison Kervin and F1 stars
In the sun-kissed Mediterranean setting of Monaco, superyachts cluster as champion drivers rub shoulders with supermodels, moguls, the jet set and sports fans, for the city state's annual showpiece - the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
We are delighted to be offering this exclusive four-day escorted tour for Mail on Sunday readers to experience the occasion for themselves - universally known as the most glamorous fixture in motor racing - if not in all sport.
You will be joined in Monte Carlo by Alison Kervin, the Mail on Sunday's sports editor, who will meet the group and share her many years of insights. You will also gather at an exclusive evening event for drinks and canapés to hear from some legends of the motor racing world.
Then, take your grandstand seats with fellow readers to soak up the drama and glitz of F1's most prestigious race...
